At New Body Aesthetics in Cincinnati, OH, board-certified physician and aesthetic expert Dr. Cory A. Gaiser is proud to offer a comprehensive range of the most cutting-edge skin rejuvenation tools and technologies available today to help patients achieve the smooth, clear, vibrant skin they’ve always dreamed of. Read on to discover the remarkable benefits of laser skin resurfacing, and find out how frequently you may need treatment to reach and maintain your desired outcome.

What does laser skin resurfacing do?

One of the most compelling features of laser skin resurfacing is that it can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns simultaneously. From classic signs of aging to discoloration and more, the list of skin flaws that can be dramatically improved with laser skin resurfacing in Cincinnati is virtually endless. Most commonly, patients choose laser skin resurfacing to treat one or more of the following:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Discoloration/hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Acne scarring
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dull skin

What to expect during laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing at New Body Aesthetics is performed using the advanced Harmony XL PRO laser for the most comprehensive treatment and aesthetically pleasing results possible. To minimize discomfort during your laser skin resurfacing treatment, a topical numbing agent may be applied. One of our expert providers will discuss your specific concerns at length and evaluate your overall skin type in order to determine the appropriate treatment strength for you. Once the Harmony XL PRO laser has been calibrated based on this information, the handpiece will be passed over the skin to deliver targeted pulses of energy. This triggers the destruction and sloughing off of dead or damaged skin cells, ultimately revealing a new, healthy, glowing complexion.

How many laser skin resurfacing sessions will I need?

The number of laser skin treatments needed to achieve your desired results will vary based on several personal factors, including the extent of your skin flaws, the strength of your treatment, and others.

How long do I have to wait between laser skin resurfacing treatments?

On average, patients can expect to schedule their first several laser skin resurfacing treatments about once per month. For men and women who undergo a more intense level of laser skin resurfacing, it may be necessary to wait several months between treatments to allow the skin plenty of time to heal. During the recovery period after laser skin resurfacing, it is critical that patients avoid picking at their skin. Instead, patients should allow the skin to flake off naturally, which may take several days or weeks. Scratching or picking at your skin after laser skin resurfacing can cause scarring and other unwanted results.

With a complete round of laser skin resurfacing treatments, proper aftercare, and a dedicated skin care regimen, patients can expect their smooth, silky new skin to last for years to come.
